Toyota Prius C Officially Unveiled Ahead of Tokyo Debut

Toyota has given us our first official look at the Prius c hybrid, which is the production version of the Prius C concept car. The Prius c hybrid is about the same size as the Toyota Yaris and will be officially unveiled at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show and then it will have its U.S. debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

The Prius c is powered by a hybrid powertrain that mates an electric motor to a 1.5L engine. The Prius c, which will be dubbed the Aqua in Japan is smaller and lighter than the standard Prius, which will also result in better fuel economy numbers. The Prius c is expected to get over 50 mpg in the city, which will be the highest city mpg of any non-plug-in vehicle.



Toyota wil also be bringing the FCV-R hydrogen fuel-cell sedan concept to the show, which is a preview of a new fuel-cell vehicle planned to launch around 2015.

The FT-EV III concept previews the upcoming electric version of the iQ. It is powered by an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery with a range of 65 miles. The production version is due sometime next year.
